   Abstract 


The aim of this article was to present an asymptomatic lesion with insignificant clinical findings which turned out to be metastatic lesion in the jaws with primary in lung. The most common site of lung metastasis in the orofacial region is the mandible, but in our case it was seen in the maxilla. Metastases to the jaw bones occur in later stages. Hence, a careful examination of patients with jaw bone lesions is strongly suggested. Metastasis to the jaw should be considered while doing oral examination as observed in the current case because such lesions usually develop at terminal stage of cancer.

Keywords: Asymptomatic lung adenocarcinoma, jaw, maxilla, metastasis
